Job Description

Planterworx is currently looking for a junior designer/estimator with 2-3 years of industrial design/estimating work experience to join our growing design and manufacturing company in Brooklyn, New York. Planterworx is unique in that we have both our design, and manufacturing facilities in the same building, that means that prototypes, and projects that we design in the morning can be manufactured in the afternoon.

The Junior Designer/Estimator position at Planterworx involves a broad range of responsibility which include, but are not exclusive to ideation sketching, 3D modeling (Solidworks), rendering, product research, and generating shop drawings. Much of the work for this position will involve doing take offs for estimating from preconstruction documents. We require the design staff to have some fabrication experience, and an understanding of manufacturing products from metal, as the position also involves making prototypes of new products, and advising the fabrication team. This position will also require proficiency using Excel, and Bluebeam. Experience with CNC programming, and Laser Cutter programming a plus, but will train the right people. Additionally the designer will be responsible for much of the day to day operations, ordering materials, customer service, establishing/maintaining vendor relations, scheduling jobs, quality control of all production that leaves the shop...etc.

All applicants must be located in the NYC area, as we are looking to fill this position immediately
